Snow Saturday

Today we cleaned and cleaned. It finally snowed a few inches last night so the kids and I got all bundled up and went outside to play and came back inside in like 2 minutes. Alec toke off his gloves and grabbed the snow and looked at me like “Did you know this stuff is so cold?” but he said, “Wanna go home! S’Cold!” Even though we were in the backyard. Then we warmed up, had cocoa and went out again and we were out for like 10 minutes this time and then Alec fell on the ice and smacked flat on his back.
So, we spent the rest of the day inside around the fire, playing with matchbox cars and eating some incredible chicken and dumplins Erin cooked up.
I think we’re about to take some of the photos down from the fridge and for some reason I snapped a shot of it.

Fun Frigid Friday




It felt like it was 80 yesterday and then this cold front came in and it's supposed to be 10 tonight. It's like Montana or something. We'll all be sick by Saturday morning I bet.
I'm excited about the studio and my new wedding albums and a bunch of stuff. As of right now, I'm planning on having an open house here the studio on March 19th. I hope I can have it ready by then but if you're reading this, you're invited to stop by that afternoon.
Avery is sitting on my lap right now and Alec is tearing up the props. Avery's school is out today and Erin had to work so I've got the little helpers to myself. We're gonna try and get the oil changed in Erin's Blazer and fix the side mirror she knocked out yesterday when she blazed out of the garage and snapped it off. And then....if we can....if there's time before gymnastics....we're gonna check out the Art Museum. Avery loves that stuff and Alec hasn't been since he's been an infant.

Full Sunday

Avery and Alec and I built a fort in Avery’s room yesterday but then…. Avery had a fever. She really didn’t like her medicine.
Anyway, after church she was feeling better and we went over to Gerrie Hartwigsen’s for lunch with Mark and Michelle Prewitt. They have 3 sweet little girls and Avery had a ball with them while Alec played with blocks and I think it might have been…..an “erector set”….or maybe I just wanted to put that in my blog. I think the “erector set” is actually all metal parts or maybe it’s just Swedish made or something. Anyway, it was a lot of fun and then we had a little youth meeting where we formed teams to head up one event each. One team of families for each season so that there will always be at least 4 events for Brookline’s kids per year. It’s a good start I think.
